Hey Ros - my babbling. DWJ wrote an essay called "The Heroic Ideal
- A Personal Odyssey" about the writing of Fire and Hemlock. It was
published in The Lion and the Unicorn (a children's lit journal) -
vol. 13, no. 1 June 1989.
It is probably still available somehow or other. Nat posted the
details a long time ago which is how I got a copy. I could try to
summarize the essay and post it sometime, instead of just gushing
about it, if you'd like.
It'll take a day or two though - *both* kids had
computer-monopolizing-worthy assignments yesterday, which is why I
was squeezed into writing far too quickly and while far too tired
last night. They're not fini
shed yet either.
